VP Diallo addresses thousands at RDR congress in Côte d’Ivoire

“This leadership [of Alassane Dramane Ouattara] is recognized beyond the borders of our continent”, Liberal International vice-president Cellou Dalein Diallo (UFDG – LI full member, Guinea) said, as he addressed crowds of 10,000 people assembled for the third congress of Rassemblement des Républicains (RDR – LI full member, Côte d’Ivoire) last weekend.

“In my capacity as vice-president of Liberal International, I would like to give you the full support of this powerful movement”, the LI vice-president and former prime minister declared as he addressed the party of the President of Côte d’Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara. President Ouattara’s RDR, which is now led by two women — Henriette Dagri Diabaté as party president and Kandia Camara as secretary general — is credited with restoring peace and prosperity to Côte d’Ivoire following election violence in 2010.

Applauding the West African country’s astounding success under the liberal leader, Mr Diallo added: “I’d like to acknowledge all that has been done and most importantly, all the skill with which President Ouattara succeeded in reconciling the country and fighting against impunity. I would like to encourage him to persevere in this direction.”

“It is such trust that drives the economic performance of the Ivorian Coast since 2010 thanks to the enlightened leadership of President Ouattara”, concluded the LI vice-president.

LI president, Dr Juli Minoves, presented President Ouattara with Liberal International’s highest political honour, the medal of liberalism, in 2015 in acknowledgement of decades of commitment the development of liberalism in the West African country and around the world.
